Because We’re Mean Spirited and All That

There is pretty much no news value in reporting on a lawsuit filed by James Patterson’s ex-girlfriend. Sure, when the case goes to court, we might have thoughts, but the fact that a lawsuit is permitted to proceed shouldn’t fascinate us. But it does. This probably has something do with one of our personality flaws. Or maybe it’s Patterson’s lack of interest in things like research and details. That probably rankled more than it should have, and we apparently bear grudges against people who don’t know we exist. {Via Publisher’s Lunch)
